Inslee: Transition to a Green Economy Will Create Union Jobs


Washington Gov. Jay Inslee said today at the AFSCME Public Service Forum that his plan to combat climate change will create well-paid, union jobs. It is part of a strategy for environmental justice in which “everyone profits in this transition to clean energy,” he added.

“One of the greatest opportunities for good, clean-energy union jobs is in the development of a green energy economy,” he said. “We want union members making clean energy products and selling them around the world.”

Inslee has been running a campaign almost exclusively focused on combating climate change. “It’s time to have a clean energy revolution that focuses on helping the people of the United States,” he said.
